What kind of programming packages are there for the 2000 Jetta TDI to increase torque, horsepower and MPG?

How much do they cost?

Thanks!

Bigger nozzles and a tune will get you 150bhp, not sure on how much torque but more than you have anyway lol, I've got about another 20-25 hp and 40-50 lbs of torque with nozzles alone, if you go for other mods such as a bigger turbo too you can go further, it depends on what you want from the car and what you want to spend, you could ask kermatdi or there's a number of tuners on the tdi club under the vendors section.:)

While torque and horsepower can easily be augmented on a 2000 TDI, I'm afraid that the effect on MPG may be a negative, as you may be tempted to "enjoy" the added torque and HP...

In any case, if you get this car, first make sure that it's mechanically sound, as adding nozzles and a tune would only be money thrown away if the engine's not running properly...

Modding the car before doing all of the maintenance would be absurd. lol Especially with 250k.

I own a drive-away vehicle delivery business. I drive vehicles out to companies around the US with my car in tow. Then I drive my car back home. If it's too far, I fly back home. Therefore, I need a car that is reliable and gets good gas mileage. Hence, the TDI. :)

I tend not to put my foot into the gas much these days. I've had my fun racing around. I'm bent on efficiency now with these gas prices.

Thanks!
